June 2018 - Louisiana: Sportsman's Paradise or Problem? [ENCORE]

Is Louisiana a Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?

For decades Louisiana has proclaimed itself as the “Sportsman’s Paradise.” But for today’s hunters, changes to Louisiana’s landscape have caused a decline in the quality of the state’s deer habitat and smaller game. For coastal fishermen, private property rights often unduly restrict access to waters that are considered public in any other state.

Louisiana Public Square explores some of the challenges that the state’s hunters and anglers face on “Louisiana: Sportsman’s Paradise or Problem?”

Louisiana Public Broadcasting CEO Beth Courtney and Chris Macaluso, the Director of The Center for Marine Fisheries for the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership and are tonight's Guest Moderator.
